Harden's says

This village pub with rooms, run by 'Cotswold gents' Peter Creed and Tom Noest since late 2017, offers a 'hearty, classic, British menu' with wood-fired dishes from the pizza oven.

A “beautiful village pub (with rooms) in the Cotswolds” that’s often “packed to the rafters”; local boys Peter Creed and Tom Noest took it over in 2017 – with the latter turning out “all the modern pub classics delivered with panache, along with some more unusual offerings” (“venison scrumpets”, anyone?); add in “smiling service”, and a beer garden overlooking the open countryside, and it’s an “outstanding” proposition all-round.

A “particularly charming small old pub” (with rooms) taken over by born-and-bred Cotswold gents Peter Creed and Tom Noest a handful of years ago; Noest oversees a menu of “excellent food including pizzas”.

On its relaunch two years ago by chef Tom Noest and manager Peter Creed, this village gastroboozer served The Times reviewer Giles Coren ‘the best mouthful’ of his life. It seems to have survived the accolade intact, and is still “one of the better pub/restaurants in the Cotswolds”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
